Grizzly bear crossing a stream (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Bear watching in this diverse landscape can range from horseback pack trips through mountain meadows to coastal boat-based tours scouting for white Kermode (Spirit) bears in misty fjords.
See giant grizzlies pawing for salmon in rivers near Bella Coola or Tweedsmuir Provincial Park. Or head into the Cariboo or Chilcotin mountains to look for grizzlies and explore their dens.
If Kermode (Spirit) bears are the goal, head to the Great Bear Rainforest - one of National Geographic Traveler's "World's Best Trips" for 2013. This is the only area in the world where these white bears can be found.
Check with local Visitor Centres for information about bear-watching tours available in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region.
